Post your thoughts on the game so far

Cons
Damage-sponge enemies
Grab/climb mechanic never used in an interesting way - no challenge, just go to their weak spot, press attack and use a stamina recovery item
Dependent on retarded AI pawns
Boring open world traversal - not enough alternate routes, enemies spawn in the same place each time
Empty open world
Boring settting/world
Worst story pacing of all time
General presentation

Pros
Combat - animations, spectacle of fighting huge monsters, amazing amount of customization
Immersion/sense of adventure

This is so true. Regularly i find enemy mages who can take like forever to kill just because muh difficulty.

i wish they would have given story and setting a bit more love. games fun and all but just walking from one fight to the next without any real interesting reason to do so starts becoming a bit boring, also since there seems to be hardly any interesting loot. ill keep playin, its fun, but some people here unironicly calling it the best RPG of the last decade is a bit ridiculous. its hardly an RPG at all.
>>
>>324259607
Are you still using a rusted sword?
Even at low levels you can kill mages pretty quickly. Unless "taking forever" means "Taking more than 4 hits".
I'll agree the Ogres at lower levels are pretty spongy, though.

10/10 is a ridiculous stretch. People like what they like. Look at Undertale's success. 94% of PC owners say it's great. Consolefags do not influence the opinions of PC players.
>>
I hate that it has quests that you only have a small window to pick up and complete, basically means you HAVE to follow a strategy guide to do all the quests or risk missing out on a bunch of shit.

It's no Dark Souls. It's more like a non-mmo version of Black Desert.

6/10 I look forward to some of the huge dungeons I've heard about like bitterblack isle. So far my experience has been all quest focused with sparse combat and I look forward to getting into some actual pure combat focused content.
>>
>>324254518
The game has some nice idea, but it just doesn't make any use of it.
Height/Weight for example. I played a loli an there was absolutely never any part were I had to go some other way because I couldn't grab a ledge. Likewise there was like one part where I profited from my short height, but there was absolutely nothing down there. The fact that the lantern extinguishes sooner is completely irrelevant as well.

There's also too few monster types. There's like, what?, 3-4 enemy types you can scale? Cyclops, Griffon, Chimera, Dragon. That's pretty damn boring after a while, honestly.

The world is pretty damn boring as well. It's not as huge (which is good) but you still have tons of walking. And most importantly it's always some green forest-y area, which some rare clips thrown into it. Where's is snowy regions? Where is steps? And so on.

Pro are the abilities and magicks. It let's you do some really crazy looking anime shit and the magic is simply one of the best (visually and per effect) in any vidya ever.
>>
>>324255345
Kill yourself all his points were valid complains.
In MH having bullet sponges enemies is justified because the game is designed around it.
In DD, where the enemies are immobile and do the same 3 attacks over and over, it's not.

>>324263446
They need to make be more creative with where the weak points are, or make actually getting on to the enemy more interesting. Rip off SotC for ideas. Give the player more interesting ways to climb , give the opportunity to dodge attacks while you're climbing (they can just brush you off and you aren't mobile enough to do anything about it).
Most important thing is to take away all the stamina regen items, or make unavailable while climbing, since all fights become trivial when you can just hang on forever and keep pressing square to win.

>>skills are a bad mechanic, 3 are far too few
compared to what? most other games similar to DD don't even have skills, you just spend the entire game with the exact same moveset

>>stamina is a shit mechanic that boils down to keeping a lot of consumables or suffering down times
it's really not fucking hard to manage it, you don't have to fucking spam skills at all times. Get the strider augment that halves stamina consumption when climbing. I can climb all day, and almost never run out of stamina unless I'm spamming skills like a retard. You have core skills for a reason, use them. Also, if you are a fuckhuge arisen you get tired faster when you climb.

>weapons and skills get kinda boring at times with melee vocations
Have to disagree. Once you get to vocation level 5-6 with any melee vocation, the skills unlocked are pretty great on all cases.

>base game gets kinda easy and boring
agreed. Game makes you outlevel content far too quickly

>augment system promotes too much grind
I don't know, most of the time you can unlock the shit you want just by playing the class a bit, it's getting your preferred class to max rank and grabbing all the ultimate skills that requires a lot of grind.
>>
>>324263872
Jesus Christ, you're dumb.
Comparisons are a legit way to justify something like that.
Asking which is better, MH or DD, THAT would be dumb and illogical, because they're trying to do different stuff.
Comparing them by saying why one thing is good in game A while it's bad in game B is ok.

I was actually giving you the benefit of having ADHD, but it seems you're simply a fucking moron.

>>
>>324263924
You're the one saying the enemies are damage sponges.

When I say "stop being shit" I don't mean "git gud" I mean learn how the fucking game works. If you're doing low damage to enemies, you're either:
low level
using shit equipment
fighting them wrong

When your pawn screams "CUT THEIR TAILS" or " 'TIS WEAK TO ICE AND FIRE BOTH" he's not just being a retard, he's telling you the most effective way to kill the enemy.

Not particularly. They have similarities but don't have the same focus.

Ad hominem is not a valid way to discuss your opinion. It makes you look like an idiot.
>>
Even if it was re-released, the fact people want to discuss an old game as if there pro's and con's matter, is laughable.
>>
>>324262661
Depends on what you consider a type. Other large enemies include Ogres, Golems, Garms, Hydras, Cockatrices, that Evil Eye boss and Death. Though some are quite rare, and/or only show up in BBI/Everfall.
>>
The only spongy enemies I've come across are the ogres, and I'm about 8 hours in.

Pawn AI is as good as you make it; I haven't had any problems with it.

The open world is somewhat poorly utilized, but it's better done than, say, MGSV or TW3.

The setting is serviceable.

Story pacing is indeed fucking terrible, though, and the questing system is awkward.

It's a solid 7/10 thus far. Not great for conventional roleplaying, but fun to fuck around in, explore, and just do shit.
>>
>>324254636
Because it just got released on PC. It's the top meme game now. Expect it to die off in about a week after people realize that once you scratch that new surface off this game is pretty terrible.
>>
>>324264558
Thank you for the advice.
But I've completed this game 3 times (including BI) already.
And yeah some creatures are a fucking chore to kill. No matter how hard you defend it, the novelty of these fights wears of quickly and I enjoy way more fighting the smaller monsters.
I sometimes wish DD wasn't so unfinished. Would have been great to fight creatures that actually moved across the world, and these large healthbars would actually make sense.

Pawns are actually more than just their inclinations. They copy your behavior as well and what abilities you use. It's a pretty deep system.

Overall, I think the game is amazing, despite some of its flaws. One of the best games I've played in a years. It seems like a some people put the game down before getting very far though, which is sad. The combat is pretty top notch once you get the hang of it.

The only real complaint I have is that warriors only get three ability slots and there's only one save file. I can see why they only allowed one file though.
>>
I wish the game let you change your set skills anywhere and not just at the inn. Only being able to use 3/6 at once really isn't much.

There are a lot of skills/spells that are fun to use but only useful in certain situations so it's not worth keeping them equipped in-place of a more powerful ability.
>>
>>324264886
You've beat the main story and both BBI runs 3 times over?

And you still don't know how to circumvent enemies with that much health?
>>
>>324264886
I've beaten the game back in the ps3 too and I really can't see how anything is a damage sponge in normal mode when you're super high level, got good equipment and you know their weaknesses.
>>
If an enemy feels like it's spongy then you're likely just not at the right level. Ogres felt like a bitch when I was at level 14 but became a lot better once I was past level 20

How do you deal with ogres? The first time I encountered one I it ran right off the spire and died. They tank a lot of damage and go crazy out whenever they get below X hp. I see that you can get them to flop on their back and stagger, but even with the pawns helping to hold them down they just get up. Apparently you can sneak by them with meat or something and they always run over to molest the female mages.

Get a lot of stamina items and then climb from behind all the way to its head. Then just keep bashing at it until it dies.

I only implied that it wasn't remotely as great as it could've been. And no that is not true to all games. Tons of games manage to deliver something really close to the planned experience.

The DD case is a case of both over-ambitious team and over-greedy publisher. And yes believe it or not publishers aren't full evil and actually understand how some game can take time, chances are the DD team failed to prove they were capable to deliver what they envisioned and Capcom put a stop to the cash leak and said "pack it up and ship it".

So for you new people who beat the game, what did you think about fighting God, who is the tutorial character from earlier? All of those drakes/wyverns/wryms you fought are fallen arisens who failed to defeat him. Or what about your pawn becoming you after godsbaning your arisen?

When making your pawn make sure that he's not guardian inclination. If you've already fucked this up to fix it go to Gran Soren, withdraw the eternal ferrystone from storage in the inn, accept the quests on the noticeboard in the basement of the Pawn's Guild, teleport to the starting town, get the item on the chimney of the building right next to the church (the one the prayer book was on), then go to the encampment and talk to the peddler standing next to the riftstone. He'll sell you potions that will change your pawn's inclination, but he only takes RC which is really hard to get right now since the Pawn system is bugged, so the only way to get enough is to do the DLC quests in the guild's basement.

Also make sure you do ALL the sidequests (aside from notice board ones) as soon as they're avaliable because most of them will eventually become unavaliable at a point in the main story and failing them can deny you the opportunity to do later quests.

At the end of the game you will marry whichever NPC you talk to the most. The only way to cheese this is to do an escort quest from a noticeboard for an NPC you like, then give them presents (while talking to him a lot). If you don't do this you're probably marrying the blacksmith or the innkeeper.

>>324268001
You just need to do the one quest to get more than enough to change out your inclinations. You only really need to buy one of each potion then you can dupe them at the Black Cat for a tiny amount of gold.

It has its faults and it did age a ton, but it is still the most fun game of its type to me. The combat is just so satisfying.

Enemies stop being bullet sponges once you hit level 30 or so
>>
>>324265521
That's how levels work. If you're low level, your damage is shit and enemies take a long time to die, if you're high level, your damage is great and you kill lower level enemies quickly. I don't see the problem. If they're damage sponges your level is too low for them, it's a simple as that.

I bet you bitched about damage sponges in witcher 3 too

damage sponges mean that regardless of your level, enemies take too long to kill, like in borderlands, where enemies health scales far past weapon damage (though that only happens once you're in new game plus).

In DD, if you're at the appropriate level, you can wreck their shit quite fast. Too fast actually.

Alright listen retard, if I level up to the point where bigger creatures aren't tedious as fuck to fight is also so point where I kill anything smaller in one shot.
This means I'm over leveled.
When smaller enemies offer a fair fight, it's the bigger ones which are health pools.
Call it shit balance, call it what you want but it's poorly designed as the design reference for health pool and balancing in general is always the most common enemy.

>is also so point where I kill anything smaller in one shot.
The problem is that at the level you're doing good damage to large creatures, the minion of choice should be the hobgoblin, or the bandits, not goblins. But the game doesn't replace the goblins, so it feels wrong when you fight a cyclops+goblins, when it should be cyclops+hobgoblins

That said, I really don't see the problem. There's literally 1 enemy that is super high toughness for its level outside of bitterblack isle, and that is the ogre. Every other enemy doesn't take that long to kill. Chimeras die really fast if you attack the non-lion heads, cyclops are a too easy even for a level 1 arisen, and so on.

Why is the pawn AI so bad, especially hired pawns?

Obviously the thing made of darkness and evil is weak to holy light, but I have to stand there for like 20 minutes during the fight hammering HELP ME as they run around in circles getting killed over and over before they decide to buff me with the one spell I picked them out for, and then when they do decide to give me the buff they chose dark boon over holy affinity and then return running around in circles before getting killed.

I mean the pawns even suck at the jump on the thing and attack the glowing weakspot, sure they can jump on it, occasionally, and they occasionally might touch the weak spot but they're far too preoccupied with running around in circles and uselessly attacking the thing shins or something.

My Ranger pawn is the only one that can seemingly do anything and that's stand back and shoot arrows at stuff, which is exactly what I want them to be doing.
>>
I think it's alright. Definitely $30 alright.

The quest system is abysmal though, and incredibly stressful. I'm asking for a point in the right direction, not hand-holding, but the game rarely gives either. On top of that, the way it paces itself is disgustingly poor.

Example:
>quest to kill the Griffon
>go with a pack of soldiers to lure and fight it
>it flees
>"QUICK, TO THE BLUEMOON TOWER!"
>sense of urgency and immediacy
>game has not mentioned this tower once
>follow soldiers, they run into the city gates and vanish
>check map to see a red marker far to the East in an undiscovered area
>quite literally takes an hour, hour and a half to get there if you pace yourself
>huge hike-up in enemy health; also encounter a strong golem
>finally make it to Bluemoon Tower
>soldiers act as if they made it there in a few minutes without struggle
>the fight with the Griffon was easier than the random golem encounter

Nothing is even hard. It's just slow, so slow. The few moments of glory with fighting awesome monsters is buried beneath everything else the game drags you through.

Don't even get me started on having to rely on your one obligatory pawn mage to buff my weapon accordingly so I can actually kill a standard enemy in less than 10 seconds.

Dragon's Dogma is the kind of game I can see improving a lot with a sequel.

OP here. Way to project. I didn't accuse the game of necessarily aging poorly or any of the sort.

People tend to pick pawn vocations different then their own. Which means the pawns learn all the wrong things.

If you got a strider or fighter pawn and he's just climbing all over not picking the right spot chances are the arisen that made them is a sorcerer or mage or whatever, doesn't really climb on things, and though the "climb on things" inclination was good enough to teach panws how to climb

For optimal stat gains for MK play 10 levels of mage and 190 levels of sorcerer. Then after you finish the game 2-3 times you can play your MK!
In other words, don't.

Stats are irrelevant, if you want to level other classes do it for augments not stats. Sorc has great augments for MK.

>Damage-sponge enemies

Use the elements pawns keep shouting about, and most shit goes down fast. Save some items for the bigger guys, like skulls to curse them with or items to boost your own attack power. With a little prep work, very few enemies are very spongy.

Hell, can you really call them damage sponges when you are just straight up fighting them wrong?

Spend some time in the same vocation as your pawn to teach it how to do shit, or grab a well trained ranger pawn from the rift and your pawn will slowly imitate the other pawn.

Pawn don't have backstories. They're literally what your character manifests through their will. So if you're summoning 10 year old girls...

Well Freud would like a word with you.

On top of that you can't really make young girls in the game because everyone must be post-pubescent. It's the rule with the character creation system.
>>
>>324278279
Most child characters just end up looking like 30 year old midgets but I've also seen a few really good ones. So yeah, you can make a 10 year old looking girl, but it will take you about 30 mins of tinkering at least.

I played through the game (pre-expansion) offline on the 360. Sure it's playable but the offline pawns truly are shit. They normally have like 3-4 skills max, shitty stats/inclinations and never seem to learn the good skills of their classes. So finding one with say a heal, the elemental buff you need at the time and couple of good attack spells never happens. God forbid you also want the debuff removal spell.
>>
Is Mystic Knight or Mystic Archer any fun to play?

I've been playing mage and sorceror, but its pretty stale. Everyone has webms of fun aerial combos and climbing, and all I can do is stand around shooting fireballs.

Also, am I fucked stat wise if I switch now after having been mage and sorceror for 20 levels?

Considering Magick Archer scales purely out of your magic stat, no.

there's literally no reason to not give the golden idol to madeleine unless both you and your pawn are male.
>>
>>324279929
Both are fun as fuck.

>am I fucked stat wise if I switch now after having been mage and sorceror

No. In fact, you're better off getting a lot of level ups as pure magic classes if you're going for MK or MA.
>>
There is stats? I thought you could only learn skills?
>>
>>324279929
Both MK and MA are magic based and they want to level sorc for augments anyway.

MA is more active and effective while climbing also has a lot of lasershows so it's what yo uare looking for.
Immolate, climb the enemy then spam thousand kisses.

MK is passive and about combining his skills, buffing up his shield blocks and melee.
If you stack Cannons and trigger them with multihit skills you will have the ultimate lasershow that crashed PS3s because 0 FPS.
>>
I'm level 20, just made it to Gran Soren and still a strider. I want to climb up enemies like it's SotC so should I switch to Assassin right away or wait till u max out Strider.

Also should I make my mage pawn a sorceror?
>>
So I'm aiming for sword+bow Assassin as my main class. I don't care TOO much about min/maxing, but when I played the game on console, I was pretty underpowered trying to do Everfall/BBI, so I don't want to fuck myself over again.

Is 1-20 Strider, 20-30 Fighter, and then Assassin for the rest good enough? Again, not aiming for perfection, but I would like to be able to do some solid damage and not get 1-hit all over the place this time.

You should probably get at least rank 9 on Strider for the augment before switching.

You can climb if you want but spamming 10 arrows per shot to those same weak points is just way faster and safer.
>>
>>324280421
Good gear ends up being more important than perfect stats so you should be fine.
>>
>>324280642
Once you get the skill that shoots a bajillion arrows at once you wont need to do anything except unload into the weakpoint until your stamina is gone

Yes.

It's like monster hunter. You can win the game even if you're braindead and just facerolling but you can also mess around with a lot of shit for fun, and they're effective.
>>
>>324280912
Health recovery is nice if you don't use mage pawns.
Stamina recovery is nice if you climb without the proper augments and generally to cheese by permanently climbing stuff.
>>
>>324254518
I played the fuck out of this on console years ago. I went Strider > Assassin (endgame bbi) > Fighter > Warrior

just mixed things up, all the roles were strong and fun.

Got it on PC, playing as a Mystic Knight, currently level 16. It feels so slow and weak. I have a mace and shield on. I know it's early, but the magic casting I have does like NO damage to anything. As for the mace, it's just plain attacks and boring.

does it get better? suggestions? I honestly might re-roll to warrior
>>
>>324281091
I don't know about warriors and assassins, but I love using Fighter and MK.

Perfect blocking just makes you feel like a total badass
>>
Do the shops ever update their inventory or do you just have to find better armour on quests? I need fashion desperately.
>>
>>324281073

Assassin is better at melee, Ranger is better at range. Strider is kinda stuck in between with meh stat gains so you should pick one of the two already.

>I want to be good at long range as well as melee
Rangers don't melee, they just spam tenfold arrows.

Magick archer is fine at both, immolate is always fun for melee and especially climbing shit and they obviously have a lot of ranged attacks.

Assassin is meh at ranged and mostly melee but he has the option.

Striders and MA are the two classes that do both fine.
>>
>>324281294
I like Strider because even stats means I can play pretty much anything later. The game is not hard enough to require minmaxing at least on normal.

Also I like Strider more than Ranger even at range oddly enough because Ranger is missing the arrow volley skill which is great aoe damage.

Pros:
Works great, wish I could run it at 4k instead of 1440p, unfortunately I only get 30fps at 4k because my GPU is old, whatever though.

>>324281592
Ranger is alright. You still have instant reset which is the most important skill and hundred kisses for ripping into shit but basically it's meant to be played "ranged unless you have to go melee"

Assassins just climb shit and then dire gouge everything to death in a matter of seconds.

Blue balls are magick Cannons from Mystic knight, they shoot stuff when you hit them.

In the webm the sorcerer pawn cast an AoE that kept triggering them so you got a magick machine gun.

>>324282158
You get a dodge at rank 5
>>
>>324282060

Yeah Strider/Assassin and I think Ranger get dodge and double jump at higher vocation ranks.
>>
>>324282205
I will forever question this decision. It feels stupid to just jump around like an idiot for 4 ranks. Also as a mage/sorc you NEVER get anything other than levitating around which is really silly. How about a short range teleport, game?
>>
>>324281812
Stats don't matter, seriously.
You might want to get some Sorc levels for augments but stats really do not matter.

Before BBI the game is easy enough that you will do fine no matter your stats and in BBI you will get gear with inflated stats that make your base stats largely irrelevant.

>>324281592
Ranger gets basically every good dagger attack, the only problem is their attacks have shitty force behind them compared to the Assassin & Strider, which already have shitty force. You will basically never interrupt/stun anything when meleeing as a ranger.
>>
>>324282154
How do you miss the riftstone that's standing at every village?

Come on, dude.
You did create your main pawn at one, didn't you?
>>
>>324282154
You don't "find" pawns. Go to a riftstone, one of thsoe big rocks covered in glowing runes. There's one in the pawn guild in Gran Soren, near the gate inside Cassardis, and one in the Encampent down the road from Cassardis. It takes you to the Rift, where you can filter and pick a pawn.

How the fuck have you not figured that out? Get rid of Rook ASAP. You'll be able to create your own anyway, and then rent two others from the Rift (you can't make these).
>>
>>324282512
>Ranger gets basically every good dagger attack

Not really, striders have their helm splitter and assassins the speed buff and the counter all of which are very powerful.
